Google Photos Brings New Features Such as Shared libraries and Facial recognition

Google Photos will soon be getting an upgrade that will give its users more control and functionality. This would represent the biggest update the service has received since it got launched in 2015.

Once this new upgrade releases, you will have the possibility to order prints of your photos in the shape books, automatically have photos shared, and suggestions on what to share and with whom. The latter will be based on new face and location capabilities that the service will have. Google Photos has been a great success ever since it has been released two years ago, and it has seen almost half a billion people use it on a monthly basis. This is in no small-part due to the fact that you have unlimited storage capacity for photos that are compressed. If you want the pictures to be in their complete format, then you will have to pay. Regardless of quality, it does offer you unlimited upload capacity that is yet to be rivaled.

Shared libraries feature

This feature for Google Photos will allow you to choose another person to which you can connect your library to. This, in turn, will give them access to the photos you share directly.  You can manage the specific photos they see and can restrict others.

Facial recognition sharing

This new feature will create collections of photos based on facial recognition processes. This will make organizing your photos much easier based on the shared events you’ve had with people. Others will also be able to place their own photos in the album.

Printing feature

You will finally be able to print your collections. It will take the form of a book, where you can choose a photo for a hardcover or a softcover. Alternatively, you will be able to select an album that you like and have Google automatically create the book for you.
